Be creative without compromise. The EOS R6 Mark II’s breakneck speed, class-leading performance and professional filmmaking features let you master your craft – however you like to shoot.

Canon EOS R6 Mark II - Capture perfect moments

Capturing perfect moments in time

Capture fleeting moments at up to 40fps with sensational image quality, even in near-darkness. AI-based, deep-learning AF locks on to fast-moving subjects wherever they are in the frame.

Filmmaking without compromise

Full-width oversampled 4K 60p footage looks simply superb. Intuitive features – such as intelligent AF and a powerful Image Stabilizer – make professional results easy to achieve.

“The EOS R6 Mark II is not a still camera or a video camera – it’s both”

Teddy Morellec – Photographer & Filmmaker


Our next generation of deep-learning AI autofocus delivers an even more powerful performance – 80% faster than the original EOS R6. The EOS R6 Mark II recognises and tracks more subjects with greater speed, reliability and precision than ever.

“If there is a shot missing, it’s not the camera, it’s me”

Canon EOS R6 Mark II - Low Light

Turn night into day

Even when you’re struggling to see, the EOS R6 Mark II focuses quickly and precisely. The camera locks on confidently in as little light as -6.5 EV1 – that’s less than the light from a half-moon.


Capturing that decisive moment has never been easier. The EOS R6 Mark II shoots at up to 40fps with its electronic shutter and 12 fps mechanically.  In the 30fps RAW Burst mode9, Pre-release capture lets you freeze moments that happened up to 0.5 sec before you pressed the button.


Shooting at 40fps gives photographers unprecedented freedom to select the perfect moment.


The EOS R6 Mark II’s In-body Image Stabilizer works hand-in-hand with the optical IS in many Canon lenses. The result is up to 8 stops2 of protection against camera shake when shooting handheld.

Capture the beauty of movement – hand-held

Shoot long-exposure photos handheld, intentionally blurring moving subjects while keeping everything else pin-sharp – all without reaching for a tripod.

Even steadier movies

The EOS R6 Mark II’s IS recognises more types of camera movement than other cameras. When shooting video, IBIS and optical IS systems are joined by Movie Digital IS for footage that looks like it was shot professionally with a gimbal.


Transform how you think about video, with innovative features that put Hollywood effects and cinematic quality at your fingertips.

Remain focused

With the EOS R6 Mark II’s Detect only AF option switched on, the camera won’t refocus on the background if the subject moves out of shot. It’s a feature inspired by our Cinema EOS C70 camera, imitating the work of a professional focus puller to achieve cinematic results.

Pioneering filmmaking features – False color warnings

Another technology shared with Canon’s Cinema EOS family, the EOS R6 Mark II’s false color warnings give an easy-to-see indication of current exposure levels. Six colors, each representing a different luminance level, are overlaid on viewfinder and viewscreen images.

6K ProRes Raw

For the ultimate in flexibility and image quality, shoot 6K ProRes RAW video using an ATOMOS V+ external recorder. Footage is easier to grade and has more dynamic range. Extra resolution lets you crop while retaining 4K quality.

Professional audio options

Connect high-quality digital microphones and XLR adapters via the EOS R6 Mark II’s multi-function shoe, for the soundtrack your movies deserve.


The EOS R6 Mark II’s 24.2 megapixel sensor delivers an ideal balance of speed, image quality and low-light performance. The ability to focus in conditions as dark as -6.5EV1 (less than the light of a half-moon) is complemented by a maximum ISO 102,400 sensitivity and an Image Stabilizer that’s effective up to 8 stops2.

“The EOS R6 Mark II is pushing the boundaries of what’s possible. It’s changing what I can do”

“It’s a clean image. In low light situations the camera is performing really well. I don’t have a lot of noise in the image, so it’s perfect”


Never break your flow with the EOS R6 Mark II. Its quick and easy-to-find controls let you react quickly to fast-changing situations. It’s a highly connected camera too, so you can share inspiring moments on-line straight from location.




Shoot photos for 50 percent longer using standard LP-E6NH batteries. The EOS R6 Mark II is compatible with existing LP-E6 series batteries and the BG-R10 battery grip too
